In INTD/SOSA 2045: Indian Society, we're looking at India as an ancient and contemporary global epicentre. 

We'll discuss the shifting geographies of the world's largest democracy, its role in the making of the post-colonial world order, the politics of caste and gender, its ancient and living cosmologies, the infamous Bollyood, and its expansive diaspora.

As a bonus, Dr. Parasram will tell you the gory Indian story behind his namesake.
